Homework - Support strategies for parents

Support strategies for parents: 

  • display a copy of your child’s timetable 
  • check satchel:one with your child every day after school;
  • agree a routine for homework with your child.  e.g. You might agree to start homework after a short break on return from school so that the evening is left free or you might agree the other activities/TV that will need to be planned around homework;
  • be available to help establish routines and to support but don’t ‘do it for them’;
  • try to ensure that homework is done on the night it is set to prevent build up;
  • look at the planner / satchel:one each week to check homework and messages;
  • know how long your child should be spending on homework each night (see frequency and expectations section).
